Editorial Reviews

Review

"Teases out the foibles of racial dissonance with penetrating subtlety."  —Washington Examiner



"Uncomfortable? Sure. But How To Rent a Negro is also funny, biting and valuable."  —Ruminator


"damali ayo has a nuanced, observant, and thought-provoking perspective on how racism works. What she also possesses, though, is a wickedly wry sense of humor, fully at play in Obamistan.  —Harry Allen, Media Assassin and hip-hop activist



"I'd been having this bad dream, that racism was still a problem. But damali ayo's Obamistan is like a warm cup of milk and a muscle relaxer! She's a brilliant humorist, and this ironic romp through post-racial America is pure genius."  —Tim Wise, author, White Like Me and Between Barack and a Hard Place



"Funny, pointed, and consistently absorbing."  —Davy Rothbart, creator, Found Magazine, and reporter, This American Life

By B. W. Patterson on April 19, 2010
Format: Paperback
Damali Ayo has managed to bring humor to bear on one of our nation's most serious issues in a style that makes it easy for anyone to understand. I challenge anyone to read this book and try to see the world in the same old way. You will find yourself laughing and learning; learning and laughing page after delightful page.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really funny satirical approach to revealing this nation's flaws when it comes to racism. Some opportunities to address some really hard-hitting issues, I feel, were lost because she focused too much on the funny and not enough on the issue. Still a great read! Easy to comprehend and it really makes you think how great we could have it, but we don't.
